About Miriam "Marussia" Marsha Gerstein

Marussia Blumenthal Gerstein was the granddaughter of Yakov Zundel

Kamber of Raseinei who was the brother of my great-grandmother Rochel

Leah Kamber.

The family tree of the Kamber family was put together by Yashe Kamber

1909-1997 of Kibbutz Bet Alfa. While I have made contact with many in

the family and checked details much of the information is from his

notes .

Her father Phillip BLUMENTHAL died in Ghetto Kovno and was buried in a

numbered grave in the cemetery.

The brother of Marrusia was Theodore (Teddy) BLUMENTHAL (1892-1981).

His wife Esther (Essia) SANDLER died of typhus in Stutthof in Feb

1945. Her nephew Alexander Karnovsky has provided me much information

about this family - his mother, who may still be alive, survived the

Kovno ghetto and Stutthof. Teddy's daughter in Switzerland, Rachel,

probably submitted the Page of Testimony.
